The Photobooth: A Short History  and Conversation about a Photographic Revolution.

Saturday September 8th, 4pm

Talks are free but require pre-registration HERE

"The night I drank too much and got into a Photobooth".
"The first time he kissed me".
"Our honeymoon, 1952".

These are descriptions I often find on the back of photobooths strips and which leave me wondering how those stories ended.
If you have a family album or a suitcase filled with family photos, you are probably a Photobooth image collector. Learn a little about the history and treasure of this American Invention and see the range and beauty and humor of these tokens of our lives.
